A beautiful and unique pen that I hand turned from a piece of Hard Rock Maple wood. Very strong wood, yet light in weight, so the pen is feather-light. After turning the pen, I laboriously hand painted the shimmery colors on the pen, a “berry-pink” and a “teal”. Several coats of each so that they cover properly. The white “foot” of the pen is like unto a piece of white porcelain. I hand applied so many coats of clear to this pen! 16 coats in all, because I wanted to insure that this pen was super well protected and that no ink would stain the paints I had applied. I then wet-sanded and hand worked the finish to a beautiful luster…lastly taking it to the buffing wheel where I turned it into a super glasslike finish.
Quite a labor intensive process to make this pen, but I think its safe to say that you haven’t seen one like this before. :-). She looks awesome, and she feels awesome in the hand. A super nice custom handmade pen by any measure.
